Pulsar astronomy and data analysis using MeerKAT

In this talk you will learn about fast spinning neutron stars, called pulsars, that emit beamed radio emission like clockwork. We will discuss how they form and view their resulting extreme properties. Thereafter we will consider their observational radio signatures, for you to learn how to conduct basic pulsar data analysis using MeerKAT.

The topic of this video also forms part of the introduction to interferometry series of talks presented in the SARAO African Radio Interferometry Winter School.
